The oil in the inlet manifold is usually from the turbo bearings or engine breather. This seems to be the norm after a few years. When cleaning the EGR ports did you also clean the galleries which run round the inside of the housing, The seal you refer to has probably gone soft due to the oil . I gave a mine a wash it hot water which helped it shrink a bit then fitted it along with some silicon sealant.
